Information before start-up

  • Agenda for the course
  • Recommended preparation
  • Requirements for diploma and certification
  • Other practical information

Practice

We use group exercises to practice methods and tools. The results of the group work are presented and discussed.

To get the most out of this course, we recommend you to do an improvement project. Several of the exercises can then be carried out on your own problem.

You also have the opportunity to get valuable feedback on your project from the course instructor and other course participants.

Diploma & certification

Diploma: To obtain a diploma for successful completion you must have attended at least 6 of 8 course days.

Certification:To become certified Black Belt, participation is required in accordance with the requirements for the diploma (above).

In addition you need to successfully complete the Green Belt course and conduct an approved improvement project within 12 months after the course end.

The project is considered approved if the project owner has approved the project and Aksena has approved the approach, tool usage and documentation.

By agreement, projects other than Six Sigma projects can also be approved.
